Director Statement

It may sound strange but it’s an autobiographical story. Seven years ago I suffered an identity crisis. A chemical imbalance in my mind made me suffer hallucinations. Even though it lasted only a short period of time, it affected me profoundly. During that time, I listened to the voice of a woman who gave me orders. When I came back to reality, I had many doubts about what had happened. Because of the hyperactivity my mind had endured, I suffered a long depression. Since then, I have been trying to work with this theme. At first, I tried it from a very direct and documentary manner, but the absence of distance from the subject meant that I made little progress. So I decided to structure it as fiction, thus taking my personal experience to the limit. In the end, I concluded that fiction is as intimate as we can get.
